The first warder who stepped in was slashed with the knife and knocked unconscious.
All 7 officers who dealt with the incident have been given awards by the Royal Humane Society
have any staff at your Prison been given Bravery Awards? is this a good system?"This incident was truly horrific, apparently the place was awash with blood from the injured prisoner and the injured prison officer. The injured officer showed huge courage before reinforcements had arrived in facing up to the knife-man who was going berserk. In the end he paid a heavy price for his bravery receiving a serious knife injury. He is a very brave man and truly deserves the Bronze Medal which is one of our highest awards."
